Some call it the Purdie shuffle (‘coz Bernard invented it, ya know) others refer to it as the John Bonham shuffle while a few call it the Porcaro shuffle but it doesn’t matter as it’s such a useful beat, you may call it any name if you can play it well…

Today we have an excellent drum lesson by John X which goes a great depth into explaining how to play this great half-time shuffle, how to capture that elusive groovy feel and master such an important piece of drumming history.

Check out the lesson and by the way have a look at John Xepoleas channel on Youtube.
